ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has issued an Amber Alert as multiple agencies look for a missing boy who ran off from his Ashland City home Sunday afternoon.

The TBI provided an update at 2 p.m.

The Cheatham County Sheriff's Office said Jorden Gorman, 9, was upset and left his home around noon, going into the woods near Valley View Road and Wanda Lane. The TBI originally issued a statewide Endangered Child Alert, but by Monday morning the department issued an Amber Alert amid "new information and growing concern about [his] well-being."

As of Monday morning, the sheriff's office said the search continues, but there's still no sign of the boy.

The search is being assisted by K-9 units and the Tennessee Highway Patrol's helicopter. The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is also assisting.

Jorden is 4 feet tall, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a gray short-sleeve T-shirt with red stripes on the arms.

If you have any information, you are asked to call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
